Xbox Live 10 Year Anniversary Console Misses UK Boat

Remember our story yesterday about the Xbox Live 10 year anniversary special edition console that will be given for free to those who have been rocking on to Xbox Live for a decade? Well, it does seem as though this free custom console is made available only to those living in the US, while veteran gamers living across the pond will not be able to enjoy such a privilege.

How does it feel to live on the other side of the pond, knowing that you have spent the last 10 years plus as an Xbox Live subscriber, only to miss out on a custom Xbox 360 console and 12 months free Xbox Live subscription? Not exactly the best feeling in the world, I will admit, but you can be sure that there are other curveballs that life will throw at you not only now but in the future. Microsoft themselves confirmed that the promotion is strictly US-only, saying, “The Special Edition Xbox Live Anniversary console is a US promotion, but we will be engaging our members in various ways worldwide as we celebrate the 10th anniversary of Xbox Live. Stay tuned for more information.” Can you say, “Bah, humbug!”?
